Dan Henderson here,

This week we have a brilliant partner inspired Battling Ropes workout called the ‘Strong Man Pulls’. As I said this is a timed workout so we’re trying to increase the speed and intensity to really get the most out of this Battling Ropes workout. Battling Ropes are amazing for producing power, strength, cardio, while providing that much needed excitement and variation to your sessions check out our Course if you want to incorporate these brilliant tools into your training sessions.

Now even though we’re aiming for the best time this workout you still have to make sure your partners technique and pull is quality. This workout is aimed to work those posterior muscles and grip strength.
